For those of you outside of the United States waiting to get your hands on Google’s poster child for Android TV – that is of course the round wonder that is the Nexus Player – we’re glad to tell you that the TV and gaming console has just been made available in a few other countries. Excited?


These include Australia, Austria (don’t worry, they really are available in both countries), Denmark, Finland, Italy, Norway, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland. If there’s a Google Store in these countries, then the Nexus Player should be available there. If not, it should be available online through the Google Play Store. It might take a while for local retailers to get stock.

We realize that apart from Australia, this just looks like a swath of European countries – and it really is. There’s nothing even remotely close to Asia — apart from Japan which already has it in market — but we hope that changes soon. Hopefully, Google will open doors to Asian markets as well.

Nexus-Player

It should be good for these new countries to hear that the pricing of the Nexus Player will be more or less around the USD$100 price in the US. In Australia, we are hearing that the pricing will be around AUS$140 – because electronics are just a tad bit more expensive down under. The ASUS gaming controller that officially pairs with the Nexus Player should soon follow availability, although the Nexus Player will pair with any Bluetooth-compliant gaming controller.
